Abstract


Multiple trauma patients are always in higher risk of mortality and morbidity not only due their hazardous and life threatening injuries, but also because of missing injuries in clinical evaluations, examinations and workups. Several studies results evaluated during this review, that most of them provided that missed injuries are mostly due to lack of experience and skill in physicians while evaluating a trauma patients with multiple injuries in all three stages of trauma care process. This review proved the need for an instruction and guideline to evaluate injuries most likely to be missed in trauma patients to prevent further complications and mortalities.
